The Flyers, enjoying a brief break, loaned forwards Tom Sestito and Ben Holmstrom back to the Phantoms because centers Sean Couturier (head injury) and Brayden Schenn (concussion) appear close to returning.

The Flyers will resume practicing Monday in Voorhees at noon. Practices are free and open to the public. They play on Tuesday in Tampa against the Lightning.

The Flyers are 7-2-1 in their last 10 road games, with both losses against the Rangers.

Speaking of the Rangers, New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist had his home scoreless streak against the Flyers snapped at 193 minutes, 55 seconds - more than three games - when Andrej Meszaros scored in Friday's third period.

The streak was the longest ever by a goalie in his home building against the Flyers, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The old record was 182:09 by St. Louis' Jacques Plante from 1969 to 1970.
